made it to the 50% mark. mr. romney has 47% of likely ohio voters. the nbc wall street journal poll taken during the same period shows obama over the 50% threshhold, at 51% and mr. romney at 45%. and with the 18 electoral votes, you can see ohio is the battleground of the battleground states. you can see what happens in the middle of the state in the capitol of columbus, my colleague is there in the state. so don, what appears to be what you're hearing there? what are people focusing on? what is the criteria people are using to make up their minds if they have not already? >> reporter: well first, i think that people think that governor romney and the president have taken up residence here in the state because they have been here so much. they will make a couple of more stops before the next 72 hours. this is the state, to really make up their minds it is the economy, the economy, the economy, and i think that is what people are really concerned about. the social issues, obviously, that is part of it. but the time now, the time has passed, i should say for social issues. since that
